In a recent interview with YouKnowIGotSoul, Tank talked about his inspiration behind releasing his first mixtape “Diary of a Mad Man,” details on his upcoming studio album “Savior,” balancing writing for others, and more.
Motivation behind “Diary of a Mad Man”
They had been asking me for a while like, “Man you should do a mixtape. Your fans want to hear it. They would love to hear some cool new music from you”. I was kind of up and down about the mixtape type thing, but I knew it worked. I know the power from seeing Drake, Kanye and Lil’ Wayne put those things out and really rock it. I didn’t know how it would work for R&B. My first time out the gate and everybody was really excited and talking about it. It really made me feel good that my first time out, I kind of hit it big.
Details on “Savior” album
“Savior” is going to be the straight up R&B thing. It’s got some elevation just as ‘Maybe I Deserve’ went to ‘Please Don’t Go’ to ‘Emergency’. The elevation is still there. It’s still R&B on the next level. It’s not old at all. It’s not the same thing that I’ve done, but it’s what I do. Just a little more current.
